  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions (320g), halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 orange pepper, halved, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika, plus a little for sprinkling
  • 2 x 400g cans chickpeas
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 x 120g pots bio yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 4 tbsp chopped parsley


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large deep frying pan with a lid. Stir in the onions, then cover and leave to cook for 5 mins. Remove the lid and give the onions a stir – they should have softened and be starting to brown in places. Stir in the pepper and chilli, and cook for 2 mins, then tip in the tomatoes, tomato purée, bouillon, oregano, paprika and chickpeas, along with their liquid. Cover and turn the heat down to a simmer for 15 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Create two dips in the mixture with a spoon and crack 2 eggs into them. Cover and cook over a low heat for about 5 mins, until just set.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, stir the yogurt with the garlic in a small bowl and sprinkle with paprika. Serve half the chickpea mixture with the cooked eggs. Serve half the yogurt on the side and sprinkle with half the parsley and a little paprika. Cool and chill the remainder. Will keep covered in the fridge for five days. Reheat the chickpeas in a small pan with a dash of water, and cook the remaining eggs in it, as above. Sprinkle the remaining parsley and paprika on the yogurt, then serve.
